This is the best guacamole ever!!! The addition of frying the garlic gives a depth of flavour that really mellows out the usual raw garlic flavour.
Alright, last Super Bowl post. Do you guys have your parties all planned, or are you one of the lucky ones that get to go to someone else house and enjoy their treats? Now, if you are heading somewhere else and you need to bring something to add to the party this guacamole is the perfect addition to any table.
So, the one problem with guacamole is with it turning brown right? It can change from such a bright vibrant green to an unappetizing hue is no time at all, but I have the best trick to keep it nice and bright until your ready to serve.
Once your guacamole is prepared put it into a plastic container and smooth out the top with the back of a spoon or a spatula. Then using room temperature water pour carefully over your guac so that you have about 1 inch covering the entire surface, store in the refrigerator..
Once you are ready to serve pour off the water and stir. Due to the density of the avocado the water will not be absorbed into your dip so it won’t change the flavour or texture. So now you won’t have to serve or eat brown guac again! And if for some reason you don’t finish the entire bowl (which is highly unlikely), just repeat with fresh water and save for later!
prep time 10 minutes
cook time 4 minutes
total time 14 minutes
servings 4 - 6
4 small avocados
4 large cloves of garlic thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 tsp salt
In a frying pan heat olive oil then add very thinly sliced garlic. Cook over medium heat for 2-4 minutes or until garlic is browned. Be sure to stir constantly so garlic does not burn. Pour into a medium-sized bowl.
Carefully slice each avocado in half and remove pits. Scoop the flesh of the avocado into the bowl with the garlic then add finely chopped shallot, chopped cilantro, lemon juice and salt. Mash together with a fork or a potato masher and stir until well combined. Taste and add more salt as needed.
